After Latest Doctor Strange Movie, Benedict Cumberbatch to Take Break from Acting

After Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, Benedict Cumberbatch appears to be taking a break from acting. The 45-year-old Doctor Strange star revealed how busy he was between acting, parenthood, and more during an interview at the screening of his new film.

Taking On An Easier Role

Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness has the Marvel hero meet whole new versions of himself after starring as a supporting role in a number of MCU productions. Though he has also discussed that this takes a toll on the actor.

In The Near Future

Now when could we expect a return for the Sorcerer Supreme? Probably not for some time. Thor: Love and Thunder is Marvel’s next big release, followed by a slew of others, however it appears that Doctor Strange will not be appearing in any of the upcoming films.

And, with The Avengers’ future uncertain, it appears that our next Marvel team-up may be a few years away. Despite this, MCU president Kevin Feige has referred to Strange as the “anchor” of his cinematic universe, and recently announced that his crew was planning the next ten years of films.
